I think Marchese quit of himself as much as he did on the team long before the concussion problems set in.
IMHO Marchese would have been of little value to the Spits had he been in the lineup. It appeared to these old eyes that he avoided the corners of the rink like the plague and loafed on the back check. He does have speed and a decent touch around the net. Not sure of the education package he has or if he has a no trade clause but his interests would probably be served better if he was playing elsewhere. Perhaps a different style of coach could get the potential he once had to emerge.

On a different note I see that some of the new draftees have received their Spits sweaters. Wonder if the US draftees were sent sweaters or would that be illegal in the eyes of Wee Davie?
